Quick one bowl blueberry muffins with white whole wheat flour and honey. These easy blueberry muffins make the perfect morning pick me up!
One Bowl Blueberry Muffins
Freshly baked muffins are the best type of muffins, especially when you eat them still slightly warm with a little butter smothered on top. I mean does it get better than that?!
These easy blueberry muffins are sure to get you started in the morning. Made with white whole wheat flour and sweetened with honey and ripe bananas. Not to mention they are moist, tender, and bursting with blueberry flavor.
What Makes Moist Muffins?
To make moist blueberry muffins, you’ll need mashed bananas. It’s an easy baking hack that I love using in my muffin recipes.
Bananas not only sweeten the muffins without any added sugar but also make the muffins incredibly soft. Make sure to use ripe bananas. Here’s a great tutorial on how to ripen bananas.
Key Steps for Making Easy Blueberry Muffins
This easy blueberry muffin recipe comes together in one bowl with a handful of easy key steps:
- Use refined coconut oil. Refined coconut oil has a neutral taste and smell, whereas unrefined or commonly labeled as “virgin” coconut oil has a tropical coconut flavor.
- Ripe bananas are a must. Not only do ripe bananas taste sweeter but they’re easier to mash.
- Measure the flour properly. Flour is the most common mis-measured ingredient in baking. Too much flour and your muffins will be dense and dry. Not enough flour and the muffins will fall apart. Use the “spoon & level” method for measuring flour.
- Stir flour just until combined. Use a big wooden spoon to stir the flour into the wet ingredients. It’s okay to have some lumps and streaks of flour. Batter will be thick. Make sure not to over-mix.
- (Optional) Coat blueberries in flour: To prevent blueberries from sinking to the bottom, toss them with one heaping teaspoon of flour. Use frozen or fresh blueberries. No need to defrost frozen blueberries.
What Goes Well with Blueberry Muffins?
These muffins taste the best warm out of the oven, topped with a little butter. The sweet and salty combination is so tasty!
Best Way to Store Muffins
Store cooled muffins in a single layer, covered, at room temperature for 2 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Freeze leftover muffins for up to 3 months.
